When you’re enjoying happy hour chatter, what you don’t want is a cranking rumble at camp terrorising the appliances we bring.
Take generators. They’ve been with us for a long time. But in the good old days any comforts they brought were teamed with a throbbing ring.
Today, they’re far quieter, more efficient and gentler on our gear thanks to ever-evolving innovations. Happily, the wins keep coming.
…Ahh, the Good Old Days
Have you ever fired up an old school genie to power a halogen worklight? It’s certainly thirsty, in fact, it’s like using a fire hydrant to pour a drink. That’s because the alternating current (AC) powering your 240V devices comes straight from an alternator that’s usually mechanical and won’t adjust to your power needs. The shape of this alternating current isn’t very smooth either, so it can damage sensitive electronic devices.
Inverter All The Way
Given the sensitivity and consumption of your 240V camping appliances vary, an inverter generator like the Yamaha EF2200iS
is what you need. These generators take three steps to create power for your 240V devices. Magnets and electronics convert the power from AC to DC and back to AC again–at the output required. So they’re quieter and more economical. This AC is smoother, too. In fact, it’s as reliable as a dometic 240V supply.

EnviroPro:Best in odour and waste treatment & composting toilets
Dealing with toilet waste has been an ongoing problem for campers and caravanners for many years. Odour issues, the amount of water needing to be carried to flush and the constant search for dump-points are just some of the problems. The Nature’s Head & OGO helps deal with all these issues, there is no odour and they do not use water. With two people using the toilet, it will be up to six weeks before the solids bin needs emptying. Then it will be emptied into a compostable bag and placed in a rubbish or compost bin or just buried. The stylish OGO has all the benefits of the Nature’s Head but because of its smaller size it only has about half the capacity. The OGO agitator uses a small motor to turn automatically for two minutes after each use, and there is a sensor to indicate the urine high level.
EnviroPro’s waterless composting toilets enable you to have a hassle-free holiday, with the least amount of impact on the environment. They are simple to install, easy to use and odourless. Just imagine a holiday without having to visit a dump-point. The first of their kind in Australia, the Nature’s Head self-contained composting toilet is taking the market by storm, and the Ogo is the smallest toilet available with a fully automated agitator.
